  4. Rescue, relief and renewal Restoring dignity: on stigma attached to leprosy ays to read the Constitution The time has come to end the stigma and discrimination against the leprosy-affected S. UBHODEEP

  5. It has long been a blot on Indian society that while leprosy is completely curable, there lingers a social stigma attached to it Even more shocking is that colonial laws that predate leprosy eradication programmes and medical advancements remain on the statute book These were unconscionably discriminatory from the beginning, but even in independent India, where the law has been an instrument for social change, the process of removing them has been bafflingly slow. The Lepers Act of 1898 was repealed only two years ago. UBHODEEP

  6. It is time for concerted action to end the entrenched discrimination in law and society against those afflicted by it ciety aainsthose Two recent developments hold out hope One was the introduction of a Bill in Parliament to remove leprosy as a ground for seeking divorce or legal separation from one's spouse, and the other was the Supreme Court asking the Centre whether it would bring in a positive law conferring rights and benefits on persons with leprosy and deeming as repealed all Acts and rules that perpetuated the stigma associated with it. UBHODEEP

  7. The Personal Laws (Amendment) Bill, 2018, is only a small step. An affirmative action law that recognises the rights of those affected and promotes their social inclusion will serve a larger purpose It may mark the beginning of the end to the culture of ostracisation that most of them face and help remove misconceptions about the disease and dispel the belief that physical segregation of patients is necessary. It is sad that it took so long to get such proposals on the legislative agenda. The court has been approaching the issue with sensitivity and is seeking to find legal means to ensure a life of dignity for them UBHODEEP

  8. The 256th Report of the Law Commission came up with a number of suggestions, including the repeal of discriminatory legal provisions. It listed for abolition personal laws and Acts on beggary. The report cited the UN General Assembly resolution of 2010 on the elimination of discrimination against persons with leprosy. The resolution sought the abolition of laws, rules, regulations, customs and practices that amounted to discrimination, and wanted countries to promote the understanding that leprosy is not easily communicable and is curable. The campaign to end discrimination against those afflicted, and combating the stigma associated with it, is decades old. While governments may have to handle the legislative part, society has an even larger role to play. S. UBHODEEP

  9. The big squeeze: on U.S.-Iran relationship Rescue, relief and renewal Ways to read the Constitution With sanctions taking a political toll in Iran, allies should facilitate talks with the U.S S. UBHODEEP

  10. Iran is reeling under the impact of reimposed sanctions after the U.S. walked out of the nuclear deal in May The crisis is exposing the strains - Internal politics. The rial has lost over 50% of its value this year, pushing up prices and compelling consumers to convert their savings into gold and other assets. With mounting public anger over high inflation and alleged corruption, any additional squeeze could worsen domestic tensions. UBHODEEP

  11. The global community must weigh in to ease U.S.-Iran tensions. Remains the risk of an Iranian blockade on the Strait of Hormuz, the passage for about a third of global seaborne oil shipments European Union should exert diplomatic pressure to renew talks UBHODEEP



  14. Article 35A The larger picture on GDP numbers The larger picture on GEP numbers The government should leave the debate on the back series to experts, and not make it olitical S. UBHODEEP

  15. Pricing of medicines in the face of rising healthcare costs, has been an persistent issue of concern for the Indian government. Critically examine (250 words) UBHODEEP

  16. Seldom cases of people not able to afford their medical expenses and out of pocket expenditure are a huge cause of concern for a developing country like india PROBLEMS 1.Inability of Government bringing more medicines under National list of essential medicines 2.The efficacy of DPCO 2013 as prices have been arbitrarily fixed by NPPA without looking at larger bracket of marginalized sections of society and their inability to spend. 3.Expansion of Generic medicines through Jan Aushadhi kendras have been feeble 4. Cartelization of few pharmaceutical companies resulting into higlh prices of medicines S. UBHODEEP

  17. 5.Regressive policies by Pharmaceutical companies to cut down supply in the run up to nullify bargains offered by government. 6.Archaic procurement systems and Ill supply management leading to irregular supply of medicines 7.No standards of enforcement leading to a large numbers of counterfeit medicines in the market disrupts both choice making and health cost 8.Common perception that generic medicines are not as effective as the branded ones is vastly misguiding UBHODEEP


  19. Media considered the 4th pillar of Democracy-trust among innocent public. News or analysis appearing in any media for cash or kind serious repurcussions - directing the belief and ideology of people in a particular direction. - suppresses criticism and misleads the voters - unrest in society - communal feelings. promotion - media house and political nexus. Roadblock - rise of honest and dedicated politician into Political arena. UBHODEEP

  20. Challenges-dealing with fake news Media independence. Need: Amendment in RPA,1951 Political parties expenditure -public. Greater coordination - Press council of India and ECI to curb paid news Proactive intervention by civil society organizations to curb paid news via judicial path Thus a strong and deterrent legislation against paid news will serve the dual purpose of cleaning the elections along with establishment of a responsible media UBHODEEP
